as an economist. those are the things that compete with our own manufactured products. >> reporter: china remains a major competitor for u.s. companies. our trade deficit with china hit a record $315 billion last year. separately, china reported it's exports grew 25% over a year ago, easily beating expectations. the robust growth was attributed to aggressive new lending by chinese banks. >> just a few months ago, the chinese economy was in contraction. we've seen really two or three months where we are seeing much stronger growth in china and that's increasing the demand for goods there. >> reporter: but analysts say the news from china may have been somewhat distorted by statistical quirks and the start of the chinese new year. looking at a few months of data shows the big story in china is one of moderate, but solid growth. >> they're not falling apart. growth is going to hold in the range of 7% to 8%. but this is not going to go back to 10% either. there's no signs of that. it looks like its a more permanent, but controllable slow down. >> reporter: china remains strong in assembling and proce

. every dollar washington spends, 40 cents comes from china. the problem is that unless the cuts begin at some point, we're heading over a cliff. this is the only time, the only time republicans have a chance by doing nothing, since it's written into law the how the real cuts. and the president in his second term ought to rise above this and is looking at his numbers instead of the budget of the united states. he has proposed no cuts -- none. >> he does not even seem to be worrying about it. there is no sense of urgency. they're so in charge but they only see this in terms of an advantage. there's no sense from the white house that they are worried. >> i hate to interrupt this gloom and doom but it is 30 cents we get for each dollar, which is an improvement. as far as the president's numbers on the deficit, the percentage of income collected from the income-tax has been the low was between 2009 and 2012 in the past 60 years since the korean war, since before the existence of medicare and the reality is the republicans have ruled out any tax increases and they're being irresponsible. th

in china with the consumer there who is kind of been pushed and pulled between stim lutz and pulling back the stimulus from beijing? >> that is an area that we do like. besides the long-term secular growth of rising wealth in china, we also now have a new leadership in place in china and that's given more confidence to the chinese consumer, and we think we're going to see continued growth in that parent of the global economy. >> tom: you've described this as a barbell approach. on one end the united states, on the other end you like china. that's leading you to technology. xlk is the ticker symbol. why do you like technology if you like the u.s. and china together? >> well, we like the technol sector for a number of reasons. first we do think you're going to see a pickup in global growth. tech companies are very linked to the global economy. a lot of the technology companies rely on corporate capital spend. so that's where we think we'll seen inflection point there. valuations for the tech sector are the lowest they've been since the mid-90s. the sector trades at a petraeu p/e level. ever

tougher retaliation. >> to china now where a truck carrying fireworks has exploded on an elevated highway. part of the road collapsed. vehicles were sent flying into the air and plunged 30 meters into the valley below. at least five people are known to have been killed but the figure is hard to verify as we now report. >> the laurie ladened with fireworks was passing over a high elevated section of road when it exploded. the force of the blast is said to have blown cars into the air. others came down with the collapsing highway, falling 30 meters into the valley below. china's official state-run news agency reported that a total of 25 vehicles had been vovened. in the runup to chinese new year, there is a huge demand for fireworks, of course, and they are sometimes transported and stored in unsafe conditions. a store room explosion in the same province back in 2006 killed 36 people and injured dozens more. the explosion is likely to effect travel in the country's central hue unanimous province and beyond. the holiday sees tens of millions of migrant workers returning to their home village

-- agenda again. china is confident, insertive in the south china sea in relations about moskow have cooled. all of this with a troubled economy at home and calls for a lighter footprint abroad. i'm pleased to have tom donilon back at this table. welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: we are now into a second term. what do we mean by lighter footprint? >> well, if we step back on that, at the beginning of 2012, the president after a multimonth review, close consultation with the uniformed military, the joint chief, service secretaries and combatant commanders around the world put together a new defense strategy. that defense strategy had to take into account that the budget control act required the defense budget over ot next ten years to be reduced by $500 million or so, a little less than that. and which would require a 5% decrease over what were the plans. and in doing that the president asked the military to think about what the new challenges were going to be. what were the real challenges we were going to face. and that defense strategy was comprehensive. and it had various pieces t
. even the only major ally china is expecting from opposition. from south korea, and david reports. >> in an isolated paranoid nation this was hailed as a moment of national pride. >> this proves how great our military is, even if millions of enemies is half as we will win. - attack us we will one. >> this was about half as a parable of the atom -- powerful of the atom bombs america dropped on japan. last december, north korea put a satellite into orbit. it was in defiance of u.n. resolutions and marked a major step in its reocket technology. they say they have made a nuclear bomb that may be small of to mount on the rocket. kim jong-un is barely 30 years old. some thought he might bring change to this port country. he seems to have decided nuclear bombs, not economic reform, is what will guarantee the survival of his regime. the korean peninsula was divided by war 60 years ago. south koreans reach beyond the dreams of northerners have grown used to protect and have shut them off. north korea has managed to militarize their nuclear weapons. the implications are far reaching and wil
securities firm pointing the finger at china. i am joined by tom, who was a member of the commission on cyber security. the administration tiptoed over whether china was responsible for these cyber attacks. >> i think they are signaling to the rest of the world but we are more willing to not only publicly embarrass those regimes but the use hard and soft power. >> what did you say could be done to protect u.s. computer systems? >> we recommend a number of things, first to modernize authority for criminal penalties as well as to regulate statutes, to improve the way they protect data. many have taken a lackadaisical approach to securing them, over relying on things to protect themselves. >> are those vulnerable? >> every system is vulnerable. they said there are those of us who know they have been hit and those who do not know. there are only two types, and we need to understand there is a multiplicity of factors. it is a free fire zone, and nations to not control the lawlessness. >> what is the worst-case scenario? what are we talking about, the stock exchange going down? >> it is about manip
china dumps tires or other products on the u.s. market, it's pretty clear how to respond: raise tariffs and slap penalties on the producers. but how do you punish a chinese company that is suspected of receiving trade secrets through a government operation the government of china refuses to acknowledge? >> how you sanction a country with regards to cyber-espionage? i think we are still writing the book on that. it's a brand new area of exploration and i don't think policy makers really have the definitive word on how this will be accomplished. >> reporter: a new report says shanghai is home base for a massive chinese hacking effort that may involve thousands of people, but the u.s. and most other countries also employee secret armies of programmers engaged in some form of cyber- espionage. and that makes it harder to define a diplomatic solution to the problem. >> a lot of the most important military information in the world is on weapons systems that are developed by private corporations whether in this country or other countries around the world. so drawing those lines is not easy. >>

-- including the rise of china, other emergent centers of power, the roll of the u.s. changing, something we need to address as americans, and i set out to try to discover how these multiple revolutionary changes are interrelating one to the other and what choices they pose to us. how we really have to get involved in steering our way into the future, and choosing options that can make it better than it otherwise might be. >> in order to take advantage of all these forces, though, you also suggest that democracy in part has been hijacked, that washington has become dysfunctional. >> yeah. >> and that threatens our ability to use all the tools. >> absolutely. we have two macro tools to use in shaping our future, roughly speaking. democracy and capitalism. in the world of political systems the alternatives to democracy have been tested and found wanting, no need to go into the details. the same is true in economic theory, all the alternatives to capitalism. capitalism efficiently allocates resource, balances supply an demand, conducive to higher levels of freedom and unlocks a higher fraction

that the intelligence community now believes the u.s. is a target of a major cyber espionage campaign, with china as its most aggressive perpetrator, seeking to steal data for economic gain. to counter these efforts, president obama announced a new initiative. >> i signed a new executive order that will strengthen our cyber defenses by increasing information sharing and developing standards to protect our national security, our jobs, and our privacy. >> suarez: the national cyber- security and communications integration center is in northern virginia. it's the department of homeland security's premiere cyber-space monitoring facility. this command center receives information from companies like at&t and verizon, and watches over the government's information networks. lawrence zelvin, the center's director, says the president's order will make it easier to combat cyber threats. >> the attacks should be measured in seconds, not days. the attacks are ever present and ongoing, and as i said, there's a variety of motivations-- criminal, nation-state, malicious, humorous. the attacks are happening in seconds.
... to move oil around, is the best approach. to move that oil to the west and send it to china on tankers that are fueled by diesel, it leaves a much greater carbon footprint. in addition, that oil will make it to the united states, whether there's a keystone pipeline or not. in the event it makes it to the united states it will come by other forms of transportation which are far less energy-efficient, thus deepening that footprint. >> woodruff: you're saying it would go to other countries and then come... >> i would say there are two options. it's either going to go to china or come to the united states. in either event the carbon footprint will be deeper. the further point about whether or not an oil pipeline somehow endangers the land which it crosses i think has been asked and answered so many times it's no longer a relevant consideration. look, the map of the united states is literally a spider web of oil and product pipelines. >> woodruff: you're saying already. >> already. the fact of the matter is the chances of sustaining a spill of oil out of an oil pipeline is 1 quarter the amo
announcing that he was going to pivot his administration toward the east and towards china and asia people-- including dick cheney who was sitting for an interview with me-- saying he worries about that because of the attention he thinks the middle east needs. is there something risk of pivoting to china? >> pivot was an unfortunate word. rebalancing in some ways. we are an atlantic to pacific power. this might have been a joke but somebody said to me "what are you going to do about west asia?" i thought what is west asia? it's the middle east. so the fact that the president is now going to israel and as i understand it he may go to ramallah. so i think it's not going to be any lack of attention on the middle east. certainly secretary kerry is going and so i think we are capable of doing both. >> rose: what should the president hope to achieve in his visit to israel? >> well, i think that what he wants to -- he's not going with a plan as i understand it. >> rose: he will have an agenda in his mind. >> well, i think his agenda is obviously some israeli/palestinian discussions but also kind

all over the place, china with the military might, north korea talking about another test, targeting the united states. why didn't they get into that stuff? >> it was up to the members to do it but they did not get into it. it was not the objective. the objective from one side was to make sure the president's nominee gets through. the other side was to do everything they could to damage him. it was not a good display of congressional oversight. >> this is a guy who said -- he voted against designating the revolutionary guards in iran as a terror organization. badgering to ask the guy to explain that? he had no answer. >> when i heard him talk about it, speaking to the senator from virginia, jim webb, he took that argument and persuaded him. >> the same that dick lugar did, and john kerry, joe biden to last a blunt about this. barack obama had taken that position. the reality was, it was another backdoor attempt, and jim webb put it on the record. another backdoor attempt of the administration of george bush and on rumsfeld and dick cheney to say now we have a reason to go to war. tha
